India’s Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) Secretary K N Vyas told India Energy Forum's Nuclear Conclave on 18 October that, to increase standardisation and bring modularity in building atomic power reactors, the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) is going for fleet mode construction for future projects. He said 17 new reactors are now in the pipeline, with seven already under construction. India plans to build 21 new nuclear power units by 2030, DAE said last year, and work has been going on as per schedule. "We are going in for fleet mode for construction, thereby reducing construction costs and speeding up construction time," added Vyas, who is also Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission.
